Consultation Of Minus And Cylindrical Eyes?
Excuse me, I want to ask my right eye minus -0.50 Cylinder 0.50 Axis x176 degrees is that reasonable?
Thank you for the question.
Ideally, the results of a sharp vision examination are carried out and interpreted directly by a doctor or ophthalmologist so that appropriate treatment can be determined. However, here we try to explain at a glance the results of your inspection:
Minus the eye (nearsightedness, myopia) refers to an eye refractive disorder that arises due to the cornea or the lens of the eye is too convex, thus making the image of a distant object fall not on the retina, but rather in front of it. As a result of this condition, sufferers will feel blurry when looking at distant objects, but not constrained when staring at objects that are close. The description -0.50 means that your minus eye must be corrected with a minus 0.5 lens.
Cylinder eyes (cylinder, astigmatism) refer to an eye refraction disturbance caused by the surface of the cornea or uneven lens of the eye, so that the object being seen will appear shaded or curved from the original image. The 0.50 description means that your cylindrical eye must be corrected with a 0.5 cylinder lens.
Axis is a component of measurement in the refraction examination of the eye which indicates the angle of inclination required by the cylinder lens is adjusted to its strength in correcting the refractive disturbance. If it is written that your eye axis is 176 degrees, it means that the angle of the cylinder of your eye is 176 degrees.
Of course, refractive disorders of the eye, including minus the eye and the cylinder can not be considered a natural thing. Because, this can make your vision function disrupted, and your quality of life can decrease. Therefore, with the results of the examination, you should consult further with an ophthalmologist so that you are given the right treatment.
I hope this helps.
